The Recording Academy announced that the Grammy Awards have renamed the international category for “Best World Album” to “Best Global Album”.

The Grammys said that this was in line with being culturally sensitive to the modern world. This follows months after the Oscars renamed the international category “Best Foreign Language Film” to “Best International Feature Film”.

The Grammys are known to be a historically white award show that consistently favors white musicians. The international category, on the other hand, has consistently been dominated by nominees from Africa and those in the diaspora.

The announcement took place on Monday, November 2nd. In a public statement, the Recording Academy wrote:

“As we continue to embrace a truly global mindset, we update our language to reflect a more appropriate categorization that seeks to engage and celebrate the current scope of music from around the world”.
